I have been alone for nearly two years but I still struggling to be strong. Love to all.
I don’t want to be strong alone x
Me too xox
Me neither xox
Nor do I! X
I have a friend who keeps telling me how strong I am. I keep telling them I’m not. They don’t see me when … I can’t even put it into words. X
I completely relate to that we keep putting on that smile each and every day but at the same time that too is exhausting hugs
But actually it’s a kind of strength Tracy, to keep putting on that mask every day. I think your post is spot on and the image is strangely beautiful and yet so very sad and poignant. I think you all underestimate yourselves in not realising how incredibly strong you really are. Sadly it has to be alone. xx
Hi kate, And yes I do agree with you it really does take the most immense amount of strength, at least there is here to vent on xox and thank you for the beautiful post
It’s strange but I always hated being alone when I was younger but now that my darling husband has gone just over 2 years now, I welcome my solitude, I don’t feel lonely in fact I want to be alone. Of course part of this is because so many “friends” disappeared into the woodwork, so I have dealt with this practically on my own. Im fortune that I have my daughter, granddaughter and my son and a new granddaughter. They’re loving and keep me sane. I still have bad days especially in the evening, I think of him and long to see him sitting in the lounge with me. Some days I still can’t believe he has gone. Oh well, I just have to carry on for the family because I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for them. Love to you all
Nor do I but I have no choice at being alone and I’m not sure I will ever be strong enough. Why can’t I just be me???
Thinking of you all,
Dear @Margarita1, how I can relate to your post. As much as it’s good to have family and friends around, I find myself craving solitude. Occasionally I go away for a few days just to get away from everything and everyone. It’s only then that I can experience the true solitude I need and it is a need, a necessity. It’s during these times, when I am alone with my thoughts, that I feel my husband the closest. It’s almost an intimacy. I’m sure you’ll understand what I’m saying. However, if I repeated my thoughts to some, they would think I’d gone barmy. Like you I don’t feel lonely but there are times when I feel alone. Again, I think you’ll understand what I mean by that. xx
I feel exactly the same how I can relate to what you have said
Loneliness & being alone are two different things.
I’m not lonely as I have my family & a couple of good friends - there when I need them - but I’m lonely without hubby.
Im alone by preferring my own company over others trivial crap conversations from people who have no real understanding as they are still together in their own wee bubble – actions speak louder than words.
Hope that makes some sense.
Very true. I’ve felt very alone since I lost my mum nearly 6 years ago and though j live with my dad this loneliness is still there. This is so hard to write this always feeling I’m in pain at losing my mum. I don’t like it one but what it is doing to me eating away inside me a heart that is so broken that will never mend. God do I want to cry and never stop not for one moment. I need my mum more than ever. She’s the only one who can take away my loneliness
